Foxcatcher
Just as soon as the first trailer for Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher" dropped last fall, it was promptly yanked offline, and the scheduled December 20th release date taken off the calendar. Was this the case of a troubled production? The official line was that the director wanted more time to finish the movie, and whatever went on behind-the-scenes, it looks like everyone involved is pleased with the result because this one is headed for the biggest film party of them all.

Grace Of Monaco
Most films headed to the Cannes Film Festival keep their cards close to the chest, revealing as little as possible before making their grand premiere on the Croisette. Not so with "Grace Of Monaco." Olivier Dahan's upcoming drama overcame a rumored clash with Harvey Weinstein to land the opening slot at Cannes in May. And now a three-minute trailer and over fifty new images have dropped to show off the goods that Dahan and Weinstein are bringing to France in just a couple of months.
